I'm digging the twin muffler exhaust.

Episode 11 just released, showing the head gasket change
engine refurbed now
so ive had the engine apart, changed the head gasket as it was leaking, replaced the head bolts, cleaned and polishes the covers, and degreased, and painted the engine with VHT enamel paint. I think its looking really smart now.
engine back in the bike
so i got the engine back in tonight, ive also cleaned up and sprayed all the engine mounts, and cleard the top level engine fins back to ally with a power file to give the engine some added flash.
next job, the seat
Made some decent headway on the seat today. Got the rear mount all sorted. Just need to work on some brackets for the front mount now.
